he may have been king of Thessaly

called Ceyx <http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceyx>. I'll

for more information upon him aside from Christian

have failed to lend any light to this research.

Robert Graves? Larousse? Edith Hamilton? Any of a host of more detailed
books and journal articles on Greek mythology? The former of these are
readily found in any decent library, and the latter in most university
libraries, together with the MLA index....

our local library. Wasn't aware the three names you present
above. Our local library may well have them, my apologies
for ignorance. Still to learn we ask. Thank you.

Robert Graves's _The Greek Myths_ (readily available in inexpensive
editions as well). This is Greek mythology presented in detail, and in
a much less homogenized form than Bullfinch or Hamilton.

something worse than useless and not being able to realize how bad it is,
or of not finding what you need at all, are much higher than with library
books, though certainly they've been known to have their flaws too. The
two are not at all equal. In some fields the web is even better. In
something like Greek mythology, you're liable to find some good basic
encyclopedia stuff on the web, though the best is probably in encyclopedia
sites not easily found by Googling. But the rich detail you need to
understand the myths is probably in large part not online, and that which
is online would be too long to read comfortably that way.

Another thing you might like to try is to hit a big old used book store, if
there is such in your stomping grounds. Their mythology section could
well be more fascinating than the library's (depending on your library of
